BASEL, Switzerland – Jet Aviation Basel recently completed its 3,300-square-meter (35,520-square-foot) hangar 1A extension. By adding the new hangar, the facility can now better accommodate its Dassault Falcon completions line.
In November 2008, Jet Aviation Basel celebrated the opening of its CHF 6 million hangar 1A extension. The construction was completed in only 7 months from start to finish. Located at the tip of the hangar row at Jet Aviation Basel, the extension 1A, together with the adjacent hangar 1, can now accommodate the entire Dassault Falcon completions. Jet Aviation’s Dassault Falcon aircraft completions include Dassault Falcon F2000, F900 and F7X.
"This hangar extension will not only help us to increase production, but we will also be able to raise the number of Dassault Falcon aircraft completions in the future," says André Wall, COO EMEA & Asia. "The additional hangar will also free up space to expand our maintenance capacity in our other hangars."
Jet Aviation Basel also provides aircraft maintenance and repair services to a wide variety of business jets. It is a factory approved service center by Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault, and Gulfstream. The location also holds a jet aircraft repair station rating by the FAA #QV1Y440K, and the EASA #CH.145.0232 in addition to approval certificates of 21 other national aviation authorities.
